Three time Grammy nominee Bettye LaVette is not a mere, songwriter, or “cover” artist. She is an musical interpreter of the highest order. Her gift is that ability to take a song, whether well-known or obscure, from any genre and making it completely her own. Now, at 72-year-old, she is still performing with the ferocity of a woman half her age. LaVette is on that brief list of musicians who recorded during the birth of soul music in the 60s who is still creating vital recordings today.
Bettye LaVette will be appearing on Sunday, April 22 at the Aladdin Theater,3017 SE Milwaukie Ave. Tickets for this all ages event can be purchased on-line at Ticketfly.com for $35.00. Show time is 8:00 pm.
